In shocking revelations by his wife since 2014, Indian pacer Mohammed Shami was accused of infidelity and domestic abuse. The player has now been charged under the IPC sections for attempted murder, rape, assault and criminal intimidation on Hasin Jahan's complaint.

Along with Shami, his mother Anjuman Ara Begum, sister Sabina Anjum, brother Mohd Hasib Ahmed and his wife Shama Parveen were also booked for inflicting physical and mental torture on Hasin Jahan and will soon receive a notice under Section 41A of CrPC.

Shami's wife lodged an FIR against Shami and four of his family members in Kolkata's Jadavpur police station under several Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections, including section 498A, which amounts to cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives.

Among the many allegations, Jahan also alleged Shami of forcing her into a room with his elder brother. "He said since I was a model, these things should not bother me much and forced me into a room with his brother, who started touching me inappropriately," she claimed.

However, Shami's elder brother opened the door when she screamed but raped her later, nonetheless. "My husband's elder brother, Hasib Ahmad, raped me when I went to my in-law’s place in Uttar Pradesh last year," she alleged further.

While Shami is calling the entire fiasco a controversy to sabotage his career, his wife has also accused his family members of staying mum despite knowing of the torture she was going through. "They urged me to adjust as I was a woman," she claimed.

While the BCCI has already withheld the pacer's contract, Jahan's claims of Shami's involvement in match-fixing has added another black dot on his career. She has released an exclusive audio tape of her phone conversation with Shami, in which he agreed of taking money from the girl in Pakistan. 

Indian Premier League's franchise Delhi Daredevils is also waiting for the BCCI's legal opinion before allowing the player to join their team. Shami has reportedly gone missing since the case was registered against him and nobody from his family is aware of his whereabouts.
